Thanks for sharing guys. Might have to give the deep jigs a try sometime before I invest in an electric.

What weight jigs do you use in 300m

Last pic is a Black Snoek.  From what I have read they do not rate highly as a table fish and have dark red flesh.  Might go OK as a bait though.

thanks Alan - looks like it

thanks Alan - looks like it would be quite oily, which may lend itself to smoking

I believe they are oily as you suggest.  They are related to the escolars and oilfish which contain laxative properties so some caution with respect to how much you ate would be advised.  Reports from people who have filletted them say they are very bony.
